Pre-tour “To Do” list

A friend asked me this week, what I still need to do before leaving next weekend for the next leg of my tour. It’s a 3.5 month tour, and my response was, ” I don’t know”. Every day, things pop into my head that need to be done, and I try to do them as soon as they appear, but often the thought fleets by, as quickly as it fleeted in. So, I’m going to make an attempt to do my little list here, and check it off as I go. Feel free to chime in, if you see any glaring omissions. While forming lists, the packing list may begin to form also, and I’ll have to put that together.
